EDDY RICKENBACKER
Signed typescript of the citation accompanying his enshrinement in the Aviation Hall of Fame
Typescript signed: "Capt Eddie Rickenbacker", 1 page, 8½x11. Full text of the citation accompanying Rickenbacker's admission to the Aviation Hall of Fame, Dayton, Ohio, December 16, 1965. Eddie Rickenbacker (1890-1973) was America's most successful air ace of World War I, downing 26 enemy planes and earning the Congressional Medal of Honor. Before the war, Rickenbacker, then a branch manager of Firestone Tires, had taken up auto racing, earning the nickname, "King of the Dirt Tracks." In 1938, Rickenbacker purchased Eastern Airlines and ran it until 1963. His heroic exploits were not over yet, however. During World War II, on a special 1942 mission to inspect Pacific airfields for Secretary of War Stimson, Rickenbacker and seven of his crewmates survived 23 days in shark-infested waters after his B-17 ran out of fuel over the Pacific. Rickenbacker described his exploits in several books. The concluding paragraph of the Aviation Hall of Fame award citation reads: "To Edward Vernon Rickenbacker, for outstanding contributions to aviation by demonstrated skill as a combat pilot, and by capable direction and management of organizations, assisting immeasurably the vital growth of modern commercial aviation, this award is most solemnly and respectfully dedicated." Lightly creased at corners. Fine condition.
